Fade Announces Retirement


Pan "Fade" Yu left Vici Gaming and announced the end of his playing career.

Fade announces resignation after the scandal at Vici Gaming. The player asked the management team for a pay raise, claiming that Royal Never Give Up tried to recruit him during TI. When VG management turned to RNG with a complaint, the club replied that it had never negotiated with the players, except in the case of TI8 (when the club contacted Team Secret players).

When Vici Gaming's management asked Fade for an explanation, the player announced his retirement. Perhaps Yu decided that he could not join any Chinese team after the incident.

“I have retired. There's no more drama and I no longer want to be in the epicenter. There has been too much bitterness in the past few years. Mistakes were made, and happiness there has been. I've let everyone down for too many times, and it shall all end here. Let me once again become an ordinary man, to enjoy the simple happiness of Dota", — Fade wrote on Weibo.

Fade has been playing Vici Gaming since September 2018. With the team, he won DreamLeague Season 11 and EPICENTER Major, and also took 5-6th place at The International 2019.

Vici Gaming is now composed of:

Zhang "Paparazi" Chengjun  
Zeng "Ori" Jiaoyang
Zhou "Yang" Haiyang
Ding "Dy" Cong
